Opting to purchase quality Flora Plant products means you are opting for a supplier that produces the best plants and offers excellent advice via this web site not just a small plastic label. A reliable plant source that together with you lays the foundation for top product performance. In an effort to compliment our range of high quality flourishing indoor pot plants we felt we needed to add these tropical foliage plants.

Calatheas are said to be the most attractive foliage plant on the market for tropical garden and indoor plant lovers. These are also known as Zebra plants they have insignificant flowers, but their leaves are very attractive and large. Their height may range from 6 inches to 3 feet tall. The foliage varies in colour; some have rose, yellow, olive or white leaves. C. insignis for example has wavy-edged leaves that grow up to 18 inches long. The top of the leaf is pale green with blotches of dark green and the underside is dark maroon.

As a compliment to our top “Fx” flowering range these are just the thing for an indoor garden filler or a tropical garden
